Great timing, as always. Doug and I were just talking about this yesterday. I hadn't realized that he was only subject number 45 in a study looking for 1,000 subjects. Not enough people get a diagnosis for this specific form of leukemia, and the study will likely time out/become surpassed by other research before they ever get definitive results. I'm glad that someone besides us is talking about it. Just hope that someone listens.


Thanks for highlighting this important report and its implications. Implicit in the importance of clinical trials is the importance to patients of seeking out opinions and/or treatment at nationally recognized cancer centers that actually can and will match patients with trials, when appropriate.
